Problem is, the guy with the Crescent Moon can make any number of arguments as to why he is being faulted and the guy with the American flag is not. That they are anti-commonsensical won't matter once we are out of common sense and into law.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
This has nothing to do with it being a flag sticker, and everything to do with an easy and sensible rule that one guy cannot be bothered to follow.
It's nice seeing you post something more than your usual 4 or 5 word posts, but you only added hyperbole and exaggeration with the extra length. There is no constitutional issue here, ho hiding behind anything. The guy is in the wrong because he chose to disobey a simple rule, and further in the wrong because he chose to use the media to make a big deal out of it, and is trying to hide behind the flag to protect his rulebreaking.
The fire department could have said that flags are allowed but what flags? American ok ! Black power ? Not so ok since that is considered racist by certain people. How about the Irsh flag ? In many North East states the Irish control the fire departments. What about the Gay flag ? If someone is very religious that could be an affront to them.
The department could have said only American flags can be attached to lockers. OK fine ! What size ? 3x5 inched 4x6 inches, 12 x 16 !!!
As someone else has said, common sense should have prevailed but it did not.

It would look very boring and Commie/Fascist to have only American flags on lockers, as if all the firefighters are very good obedient servants of the great America, know no other, America greatest nation in all world, glory be to America!
